The German Touring Car championship, known as the DTM, has been known for having some unique cars that act as their safety cars, that needs to be just about as quick as the DTM race cars. BMW is relatively secretive about what features the car has, but a roll cage, racing steering wheel and racing seats are amongst the items that are visible. We are pretty sure this car has extensive work under the hood.
In order to be seen, the car has safety lights on the hood, which almost resemble a BMW M3 police car. Maybe images like this will entice German police to use the BMW m3 as a police cruiser on the roads of Europe!
